Blake "ShadyVox" Swift (real name Patrick) is an voice actor from the UK, musician, composer, singer-songwriter, sound designer, editor, writer, and director. He was working on Yu-Gi-Oh GX The Abridged Series, Abridgimon, and Sonic X The Abridged Series.


In mid-2011, ShadyVox stopped working on Yu-Gi-Oh GX The Abridged Series. Many fans were disappointed that they wouldn't be able to hear the "sexy Jaden" voice again.

However, Episode 13 was updated in mid-September.

ShadyVox returned to Yu-Gi-Oh GX The Abridged Series in late September. Not long after he returned, the whole Abridged series was taken down from YouTube.

ShadyVox reprised Jaden Yuki in Yu-Gi-Oh! Bonds Beyond Time Abridged with LittleKuriboh and TheAzureCrow.

It was announced in January 2014, that he'd left GX Abridged, to focus on his music. However, in February 2018, he announced his return to the series.

In 2023, allegations were made by LittleKuriboh on Twitter that ShadyVox had been threatening him. LittleKuriboh recounts his history with ShadyVox from 2010-2023, highlighting moments of mistreatment and deception. Patrick's threats escalated over time, including sending multiple threatening emails, attempts to damage Martin's reputation, and involving other third parties in a false narrative. LittleKuriboh also draws attention to the disturbing elements in ShadyVox's recent works including "Canary - Joker".

LittleKuriboh made a tumblr post that consolidates all the info since the chronology and screenshots were in separate documents.
